I know who Annie Leibovitz is. Doesn't change anything really.

Holy shit, Miley's body is covered in skin!!1!


Seriously, you guys need to learn the difference between a nude photo (for which this hardly qualifies), and a sexually explicit photo. Under the law, she could be six years old and totally naked and it would still be perfectly acceptable to be published. It's not like she has a dick in her mouth.

I'm not saying the photographer is at fault. I'm saying the editors of Vanity Fair are. Who in their right mind says we need a 15 year old only wearing a sheet for this fluff piece?

Can anyone think of any other underage actresses/performers who posed only wearing a sheet (or less) for major, respectable magazines like this? I just can't see why Vanity Fair would do this. Artistic or not, she's 15.

This was a stunt for her to get some exposure for acting roles later in life and not to be type cast as a kid's actress. Disney might fire her, but this will open up new doors. The photographer who did this is considered one of the greatest photographers of all time

Should only 18 year olds be allowed to show their bare backs in a magazine shoot? Your average high school girl exposes more than this on a typical afternoon at the beach.

If she was doing something like posing topless spread out on a bed, covering her with her hands, then I'd agree with you. But I really can't see what the enormous fuss is here.

Parents who have made her a billionaire hoping she doesn't turn into a slutty influence on their kids have every right to be kinda miffed about this. As does Disney.

I think her parents are at fault also. Didn't they have to sign off on this being that she's a minor?

Miley Cyrus says Vanity Fair photo spread embarrasses her
Miley Cyrus is taking issue with a photo of herself that's going around, and it's not another amateur, truth-or-dare Internet snapshot - it's the handiwork of Annie Leibovitz.

"I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed," Cyrus said Sunday in a statement through her publicist. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about."

The photos, appearing in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, were taken by Leibovitz, a renowned celebrity photographer whose edgy, silver-toned portraits have included subjects such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and a naked, pregnant Demi Moore.

The Cyrus pictures accompany an interview with the 15-year-old pop star and her father, singer Billy Ray Cyrus. They include shots of the teen wrapped in what appears to be a satin bedsheet, looking over her shoulder with her back exposed.

The Disney Channel, which airs Cyrus' TV show "Hannah Montana," was also critical of Vanity Fair.

"Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines," a network statement said.

A phone message left for a Vanity Fair representative was not immediately returned Sunday night. But in a statement to the TV show "Entertainment Tonight," Vanity Fair defended its position.

"Miley's parents and/or minders were on the set all day," the magazine said. "Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley."

In a caption released by Vanity Fair with the photo last week, Cyrus expressed her comfort with how the apparently topless picture turned out.

"I think it's really artsy," she told the magazine at the time. "It wasn't in a skanky way. Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool. That's what she wanted me to do, and you can't say no to Annie."

A handful of borderline racy snapshots of a girl who appeared to be Cyrus have appeared on the Internet in recent months, including images of a girl posing in her underwear and bikini last week.

Cyrus is one of the biggest - and most G-rated - acts in the country and is often considered a role model for young girls. Her "Best of Both Worlds" tour sold out arenas, and her successful 3-D concert film collected $31.3 million in its opening weekend in February.

Jessica Biel posed for Gear back when she was 17. She was mad about losing out on a role in American Beauty and thought her girl-next-door image from 7th Heaven was the reason for it. So she posed scantily clad in order to get out of her TV contract. I think she's mentioned regretting it later on, but it accomplished the original mission.

The fact that Miley's crying foul over the pics just proves that she's desperate to get away from her Disney image but maintain that she's a 'good girl.' It's all about retooling her image.

I agree.

Miley is just being groomed to fill the void Britney Spears has left. I don't believe her parents Billy Ray and Tish didn't know what was going on during the photoshoot. They are just laying the ground work for Miley to discard the Disney image. Britney was a Mousketeer. Look where she went and made a ton of cash.

As for everyone crying foul. "Methinks they do protest too much".

But I guess the "Little girl taken advantage of by famous photographer and greedy magazine" angle will likely prevail. God forbid she and her family actually approved of the pictures.

I like Jamie Lee Curtis' take on this

I woke up this morning concerned about the world food shortage and Korean defectors attempting self immolation in protest of Beijing and was astonished at the amount of attention a young woman named Miley Cyrus was getting for a topless, or shall I say backless, photograph in Vanity Fair.

Just to connect the dots, I too have weathered a recent bout of hysteria over a supposed topless, or shall I say strapless, photograph in a magazine. In my case it was an understanding that the photo in question be shoulders up regardless if I was wearing a suit of armor, chastity belt, wet suit, strapless bra or nothing. It is, was and will always be irrelevant and only became an issue when it was publicized as "topless". All the nipple loving/leering people wanted to know...was it true? Kids I know asked their parents and me if I had posed topless. Saturday Night Live in a funny parody alluded to it as well as the efficacy of Activia yogurt and we all had a good laugh and it sold magazines and it is/was over. Now this.

Apparently young Ms. Cyrus has apologized for something she was told would be artistic and now feels embarrassed about. I feel for her. Of course she is embarrassed. She is a young girl. She shouldn't have to deal with any of this. I don't feel that she was duped. I know the integrity of Ms. Liebovitz and the magazine and I know there were people present at the shoot that should have been looking out to make sure that this didn't happen. In the offending photo she looks tousled and soft and vulnerable and yes...even sexy. She is fifteen after all, and the word sex is starting to come up. I seem to remember a fourteen/fifteen year old Brooke Shields commenting that nothing came between her and her Calvins. There would be no problem if Ms. Cyrus doesn't represent something that is counterintuitive to that image.


In the article in the New York Times Business Section, a Disney executive is quoted, saying "For Miley Cyrus to be a 'good girl' is now a business decision for her. Parents have invested in her godliness. If she violates that trust, she won't get it back." In the world of constant scrutiny how can a young person not violate this and develop a mind, body and spirit of their own? Look at the '50s and the idols of that time. Many gay men with beards...sham marriages. Young stars trying out their sexuality secretly. My own mother (pre-show business) was married at 14 to be able to explore her own passions. Today's generation of performers have had to navigate the treacherous shoals of adolescence in full frontal viewbertry of the peering voyeurism of the media and it's voyeuristic participants. We have watched them as they stumble out of the safety of childhood, not that being a professional actor as a child is safe, but that is another blog, into the glare of celebrity, rehab, prison, teen pregnancy and now this, a backless shot of a young girl. It was called "artistic'. If we keep a young person's natural sexuality in check during their performing years what happens to it? It has to come out. Daniel Radcliffe is starring in Equus which includes nudity and parodied his natural urges (hilariously) on Ricky Gervais' EXTRAS. He has had to carry the weight and morals of Harry Potter and Warner Brothers and can now, as Harry has grown up and the series is nearing its end, tread lightly into adult fare and explore his art.


When these young people get all dressed up for award show red-carpet events don't we all comment how beautiful, stunning and grown-up they look in their strapless/backless dresses and heels and tousled hair? None of this is new. None of this should be news. But it is news because it is a business. It is all Business. It is called Show Business. Show Abyss-ness! I call it Show-OFF Business. You throw a child into the jaws of a business and they will get eaten.

I know how Miley feels. I too was a little embarrassed by my recent topless "scandal" and the subsequent parodies, but I am an adult woman. I protected myself during the shoot and I can take the heat. I only wish that her guardians had protected her.
